Rhind Lectures 2024

About Rhind Lectures 2024

Two 'little' ice ages and an anomaly: climate, environment and cultural change in medieval and early modern Scotland.

The Rhind Lectures are our most highly anticipated event of the year. Since 1876 the Society has invited experts to give an annual series of six lectures on a historical or archaeological topic.

This year, Professor Richard Oram FSAScot will dissect the impacts of historic climate change on the environment of Scotland and its people. Between the dawn of the ‘Late Antique little ice age’ in the 6th century CE to the waning of the ‘little ice age’ in the 19th century CE, from epidemic and epizootic disease to energy crises and transitions, ‘Golden Ages’ to ‘Ill Years’, this was an era where dearth, abundance, sustainability and resilience shaped Scotland.

Join us free online or in person in Edinburgh.
